Smart surfing

Remain as anonymous as possible. That means keeping all private information private. Here are some examples of private information that you should never give out on the Internet:

»»full name
»»home address
»»phone number
»»Social Security number
»» names of family members
»»credit card numbers

Meeting online friends face to face carries more risks than other types of friendships because it's so easy for people to pretend to be something they're not when you can't see them or talk in person.

If you ever get involved in a chat room conversation that makes you feel uncomfortable or in danger for any reason, exit and tell a parent or other adult right away.

Be careful !

Isilda Miranda, a great voice!

This Portuguese teenager has a great voice. She is now in the 10th grade, and I had the pleasure to be her English teacher for three years (7th, 8th and 9th grade). Her voice is marvellous and whenever she sang in our school activities we were enchanted.
I wish her a lot of success!

I have the honour to be the English teacher of this teenager, Inês Pereira. She is a very good student, an excellent person and likes music a lot. She has already performed in some of our school activities and I have the pleasure to share her talent with you.

Congratulations, Inês!
